Mr. McCollum represented me in a personal injury matter. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and confident. Dealing with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, was not easy. Although the insurance company had initially refused a settlement offer, Mr. McCollum used his expertise and ability to reach a satisfactory settlement.
Mr. McCollum is extremely competent, professional and helpful. I certainly recommend Mr. McCollum for your legal needs.
